Today’s ride was hot. As I left the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, it was a little over 90 and the temperature quickly rose to 100+ degrees as I headed North on I15. Just past St. George Utah, I turned East and rode through Utah and Arizona on Rt 89 and Rt 160. The heat wasn’t quite as bad and dropped t to the mid-high 90’s for most of the day.
I always find the mesas and rock formations in Utah and Arizona interesting and enjoy the scenery in this part of the country. The roads tend to be long and straight so the ride can be long and boring leaving plenty of time to look around and enjoy the landscape.
I had intended to get to Durango Colorado but about 40 miles from Durango, I decided to stop for the night in Cortez CO. After riding it the heat all day, I was hot, tired, and hungry.
